Precipitate, You points are very valid and I've taken them to heart. But as LRB and Chai Guy have both said bring more than you think you'll need and I think we'll need 3.25 gallons per day. As for mileage the bus I'm buying in January gets 7.8-8.5mpg loaded or not so an extra 1000lbs for a few hund...

As another participant, I'd rather see your energy going to something that will benefit a larger portion of the community than just your friends, but that's just me.

Well, I didn't know about the non-theme camps only being allowed on Monday.. Didn't catch that while reading the loads of data I've been reading. I guess the other folks are going to have to come up with a theme of some kind or We'll end up scaling way back. Thanks for the info... Precipitate, Thats...

Precipitate, I don't do drugs and am very guarded no matter where I am at. I already drink 2 liters plus of cold and refreshing water every day anyway, so hydration shouldn't be an issue. I can and do operate in much higher stress situations than most people are used to. I have no illusions of the w...

Most of the time people take me wrong because I am so intense in so many respects and its hard to accept. But I feel welcome here and thats...

A-Maze-ing

How about putting up mazes of sail cloth so that when people try to pass thru your camp they get lost in all the dead ends and get so upset they follow their trail of bread crumbs back out of your maze vowing never to try passing thru your camp again. Then again you could have traps and paintball ma...
